The Former Black Stars midfilder speaking to Tema based radio station PlanB104.5Fm saids, club owners treat players badly and when the time comes for them to honor their part of the contractural agreement they signed with the players, they begin to drag their feet on that. This he said has led to player exodus when the opportunity present itself.
